by the obama administration, saying its practice of hiding details about rendition and torture "cannot continue to be justified on the basis of national security." a bipartisan group of senators has cancelled a news conference on immigration reform today because of the boston bombing, but still plans to introduce the legislation. the bill reportedly will provide a 13-year path to citizenship for some undocumented people, but would require border controls criticized as near as possible to be put in place first. according to mcclatchy, applicants would have to pay upwards of $2,000 in fines and check in using a probation-style system. if they fell behind on their fines, they could use the right to be in the u.s. according to nbc news, the bill would allocate $4.5 billion for increased militarization and fencing along the u.s.-mexican border and demand an enhanced version of the controversial e- verify system to prevent undocumented immigrants from working. venezuelan opposition candidate capriles is continuing to challenge the results of his presidential race against nicolÁs maduro, the chosen s
rates are trending downward in this country but still 50,000 new cases each year. that's why the obama administration says it's making the epidemic a top priority. >> the president 2014 budget that he just released last week. includes over $23 billion to address hiv-aids in the united states. >> an epidemic that's 30 years old. in the district, bob barnard, fox 5 news. >> thanks so much for joining us tonight at 10:00. here's brian with the news edge at 11
's approach -- obama's administration's approach. there is an assessment coming into the obama administration that the united states has overreacted to north korea. provocations and overtures. that when there was a hint from p'yongyang they would be willing to make some improvement, we would get to the negotiating table. similarly, when it was a provocation we wrap up quickly. we wanted to see if we could break that cycle. in the first few years we saw a and we generally stuck to our guns and principles and cut the door open for discussions on the conditions of what north korea had already agreed to. i think it is important to note that we should not confuse strategic patients with standing still. the u.s. has been fairly active in its approach to north korea more broadly, in terms of enacting robust sanctions against north korea. other forathe un and to enhance our sanctions and international pressure and to isolate p'yongyang. also the efforts to enhance our alliance of partnership capabilities and enhance our military presence in the region under the strategic rebalancing, also buttressed
. the white house and the obama administration says that the border is more secure than it's been in 40 years. and spending more money on border security is not really necessary. their follow-on point would be that by creating legalization programs and also by creating a way for people to come legally into the u.s. to work, that you take some of the pressure off the border. and, you know, that said, there's been frustration among people who have seen these efforts go before without really trying to clamp down on the border and create a legalization program. >> ifill: brian, what also feels different this time is we have gotten used to seeing rallies like what we saw on capitol hill today with the same usual suspects saying it's time for immigration reform but it feels like this time like other people are on that bandwagon including members of the larger faith community. >> the political environment is a lot different than in 2007 the last time congress took up an effort to overhaul the nation's immigration laws. right now we have evangelical leaders who have signed on and said, look, there's
in fuel efficiency standards under the bush administration, which were increased in the obama administration. so we're producing more and we're using less. and that's why the price of fuel is down a bit. >> all right. makes a lot of sense. fred, good to have you on the program. thanks very much. >> thank you. >> we'll be cheering on your folks here as they ring the closing bell. bill? >> all right. we're coming back a little bit here. the douw was up 151 at the high of the dead, we're up 131 right now. >> apparently, bill, the bias is to the buy side here on the floor. >> good to know. >> we'll see what happens. >>> up next, a thing who knows a thing or two about terrorism. former new york city mayor rudy us what we can learn from the explosions in boston and how to navigate this. yeah, i'm married. does it matter? you'd do that for me? really? yeah, i'd like that. who are you talking to? uh, it's jake from state farm. sounds like a really good deal. jake from state farm at three in the morning. who is this? it's jake from state farm. what are you wearing, jake from state farm
people to pull in. nonetheless -- >> that is not the case. >> every time the obama administration does an audit, in which they have to fire all their illegal aliens, there are americans lined around the block. there have been no problems -- >> i want to raise one point. doug holtz okayin who runs the american action forum, a smart guy, ran the congressional budget office. he told me, we should have about 500,000 legal new immigrants per year. and if we do that, the economic growth rate will rise by 1 percentage point each year for about ten years. >> and let me add something. >> what i'm saying is -- we not only need to legalize the workers here in this marco rubio reform bill. but down the road, we've got to add a half million people a year. that will make the labor force break even or somewhat higher, because that will take care of the decline. >> larry, you left out something. >> that lowers the budget deficit by 2.7 did his trillion. >> there is something else. he also finds the actual per capita income rises. so not just the entire economy grows, but the economy grows per capita b
had stagnant growth frankly throughout most of the obama administration and the leadership in the last five years. we need do better. >> host: why is it okay to spent billions of year on corporate entitlement who don't pay taxes. we pay for our entitlements wall street does not. >> guest: it's not okay. , i mean, frankly, we need to bring it in and change our tax code in a way that lowers rates for everybody and eliminate the big corporation. i do recognize, i think the caller -- the e-mail is correct. folks have paid in to social security and medicare deserve to receive those benefits. the problem is something is not done, then the programs over time have the risk of going away. >> host: on twitter wouldn't social security and medicare be in a better shape if wages were higher? >> guest: wouldn't social security and medicare be in better shape if wages were higher? yeah. that's right. one of the challenges we face is how do you get the growing economy going forward and that is up with of our big debate for the summer. republicans believe that we need modify our tax code and reduce rat
korea allies and our japanese allies as well. and i think that the obama administration with the b-52 deployments, with the b-2 deployments and other statements we've made have done exactly that. that's the right way to do it, to respond to this crisis. not by making it even more complicated by reintroducing nuclear weapons onto the korean peninsula or having the rok develop its own nuclear weapons program. >> okay, thanks. we've spent a lot of time analyzing the situation, and now we want to turn at the end to what to do about it. and evans has made the important point that, um, as much as one would like a role for diplomacy and negotiated sort of solution or management of these problems, the conversation that the united states wants to have now quite different from the conversation that north korea is willing to have. and vice versa. so the question then is, are there specific things that might be done to get us off this dime and produce a more useful and mutually beneficial, mutually acceptable conversation? and to start i'd like to turn to mike who's write about this. >> thanks, r
years. by and large, the bush administration and the obama administration should be applauded for the efforts. all the men and women who work throughout our law enforcement agencies, the fbi, cia, military, to try to keep us safe. but when these tragedies occur, we cannot help but be heartbroken and we need to see what more needs to be done. host: let's move on to the budget. the front page of the washington post has its headline -- where did you come down on a proposal from the president, the chained cpi, as well as higher medicare premiums and reduced benefits for wealthier seniors? guest: we have to start with the premise cannot keep spending money we don't have. we have a moral obligation to not rob the next generation of their opportunity to live the american dream. at the same time, we have seniors who have paid into this program, folks that are near retirement and those years away from retirement to have paid into social security and medicare with the understanding there will have the security of those programs being strong. actuaries of either party will tell you the n
is available to answer those questions. on the issue of the obama administration, during the 2008 campaign, president obama criticized the bush administration's treatment of detainees. candidate obama promised to close guantÁnamo and to reject torture without exception or equivocation to the also criticized previous administration for executive secrecy, including repeated invocation of the state secret privilege to get civil lawsuits thrown out of course, and he promised to lead a new era of openness. the administration has fulfilled some of those promises, and inconspicuously failed to fulfill others. in some cases because congress has lost them but in other places -- block them. as mentioned earlier, i level of secrecy surrounding the rendition and torture of detainees cannot continue to be justified on the basis of national security. the authorized enhanced techniques have been publicly disclosed, and the cia has approved its former employees publication of detailed accounts of individuals and interrogation. ongoing classification of gerald document these practices serves only to conce

released a letter, nine-page letter to president obama asking the administration to reveal its legal basis for targeting killing and called for an end to the secrecy surrounding the use of drones. what's the purpose of the letter? >> this is the first time that all of the human rights groups in the united states including some that operate internationally as well all signed on to the same letter telling president obama that in our view, this is an illegal program. that this is a program that needs to end the way it's been operated. and that we also need to know a lot more about the program. >> bill: didn't the president say when john brennan's confirmation up and you were in, we talked about this before, that they were going to come forward with their guidelines and their policy and so we would all know when they used drones and who makes the decisions? >> well, they -- at that time, because to try to get john brennan confirmed to be c.i.a. director they let a few more pieces of the information about the drone program out. particularly to members of the senate intelligence committee. but o

now? >> hi there, chris and john. obviously the key steps of the administration here is trying to figure out who and why. two questions that at this point are still very much unknown. as you mentioned, john, president obama received an update overnight from one of his homeland security advisers. we know that he will be briefed later this morning by that homeland security adviser, alissa monaco, as well as by the director of the fbi robert mueller and his other senior members of his team. he did find out about this initially around 3:00 p.m. eastern time yesterday. he took to the podium a little after 6:00 p.m., promising that the u.s. will respond. >> we still do not know who did this, or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. but, make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did this, we'll find out why they did this. any response -- any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice. >> the white house released a photo of president obama on the phone with the fbi direct
